If eyes are the windows to the soul, then eyebrows and lashes are the window dressing. Your brow shape and color have a particular impact because they frame your face. For this reason, eyebrow tints are a great way to get a quick and easy makeover. Learn more about the treatment below.
Eyebrow tinting is a low-cost solution to ensure your brows are always defined and just the right color to enhance your appearance. You don’t want them too dark, or they’ll look unnatural and severe.
An experienced brow technician will enquire about the look you’re going for. Then, they’ll use gentle dyes to give you a shape and custom color that best suits your goal, face, and lifestyle.
First off, you’ll need to do a patch test to rule out any allergic reactions. Once you get the green light, your technician will begin by wiping off any makeup before brushing your brow hairs and mapping out an optimal shape.
Next, they’ll smear petroleum jelly around your brows to keep unsightly skin stains at bay. The tint goes on in a thick layer and stays on for up to five minutes. Finally, your aesthetician will remove the product with a wet cloth.
Et voilà! You now have full, gorgeous brows and a shorter makeup routine to look forward to.
When done correctly using vegetable or henna dyes, eyebrow tinting is safe for most individuals. Make sure to go to a reputable salon that uses tints free of coal tar. The DIY route can be risky if you’re not careful to protect your eyes.
There is no FDA-approved lash tint or brow dye, so the treatment is illegal in certain states. That’s not the case in Colorado, where eyebrow tinting is highly popular.
Brow hairs grow out and shed. Post-treatment, you shouldn’t have to worry about applying pencils or powders for at least three weeks. Bolder looks can last up to two months depending on the dye used, your hair growth cycle, sun exposure, and the type of cleanser you apply around your eye area.
Your color will fade evenly, so you don’t have to stress about your brows looking odd.
Eyebrow tinting is perfect for thinning, fair, or greying brows, and it only takes 15 minutes to freshen up your look.
